Free Toy Knitting Patterns and Ideas

All children love receiving new toys, and most children are just as happy receiving a handmade toy as they are when they receive a store-bought one. Have you purchased an expensive toy for your child or grandchild, only to watch them play with the packaging more than with the toy itself? Why not make a toy for your child or grandchild with one of the designs in this collection of free knitting patterns? Whether your child likes stuffed animals, dolls or even games, you'll find a design that's sure to work and you'll have fun making it.

As the weather gets cooler and the days get shorter, kids will spend more time inside. That's the perfect time to knit them small toys or start creating toys as holiday gifts. From blocks to balls, even bath toys, we have plenty of options for you to choose from. Your kids or grandkids will get a kick out of the Accessorize Your Snowman Pattern. You can knit them a carrot nose and other accessories for their own Frosty. It's a hilariously fun use of your knitting skills.

We also have a selection of adorable doll clothes. Create Barbie clothes or outfits for 18-inch blush dolls. You can even dress up a teddy bear in a cute sweater. Doll clothes can get really pricey, but handknit clothes are a great alternative. You can even knit doll clothes with matching clothes for the little girl! She'll love feeling like a bobsey twin with her doll.
